Another Lonely Christmas: Press Rewind – Prince Lyrics Podcast



On Episode 62 of the Press Rewind – Prince Lyrics Podcast, Todd Sanzone (@tsanzone513) & I experience a sad and depressing Christmas in May through the lyrics to Prince’s B-side, “Another Lonely Christmas”. We drink some banana daiquiris, have a good cry and try to figure out what this poor girl died from (pneumonia? stress? strep?)

The goal of each episode of Press Rewind is to:

  • Take a track by track look at the lyrical content of Prince’s discography
  • Discuss my own interpretation of each song’s lyrics along with any guest I may have
  • If submitted, discuss listener’s interpretations of each song’s lyrics

Thank you for joining me on this journey through Prince’s catalog!


God: Press Rewind – Prince Lyrics Podcast



On Episode 61 of the Press Rewind – Prince Lyrics Podcast, I pore over the biblical lyrics in the strange yet arresting vocal acrobatic exercise that Prince gives us on “God”, the B-side to the massive pop hit, “Purple Rain”. Is Prince sermonizing, teaching Bible Study or finally…finally….giving us a completely naked example of his spirituality without all the metaphors & hidden meanings?

The goal of each episode of Press Rewind is to:

  • Take a track by track look at the lyrical content of Prince’s discography
  • Discuss my own interpretation of each song’s lyrics along with any guest I may have
  • If submitted, discuss listener’s interpretations of each song’s lyrics

Erotic City: Press Rewind – Prince Lyrics Podcast



On Episode 60 of the Press Rewind – Prince Lyrics Podcast, I am again joined by Farooq Ansari (@anti-social on Twitter) to discuss the sleazy, robotic funk of “Erotic City”. Arguably Prince’s best and most well-known B-side to the iconic “Let’s Go Crazy”. Enter the Garden of Hedonism with us to talk about this Prince and Sheila E masterpiece.

The goal of each episode of Press Rewind is to:
